It isn’t often that a 21-year-old can say that they have almost two decades of one form of performing or another under their belt. Enter Vancouver singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer/actor Josh Bogert.
Read on to find out where it all started, who/what inspired his latest single, “Dreams,” and much more.
Absolutely! I wrote this song with summer in mind, and I’m so glad the timing worked out for this release. I’m hoping it can be the soundtrack to lots of fun over the next few months.
I think starting the Violin was a very good thing for me because it is one of the hardest instruments to play. It made learning other instruments feel easier, and the more instruments I picked up, the easier it became to learn them.
From the time I started writing songs, I wanted to have recordings of them. So I started recording myself with the tools I had at the time. It grew into becoming my own producer and engineer, and I was really able to hone in on my own unique sound without having to rely on someone else to create it. I love being able to take my vision all the way from start to finish and tell my own story with all the aspects of the music creation process.
I was having coffee with my good friend Mark, the director and camera operator for the video, and I told him I wanted to find the most incredible landscape we could so that the video would look like a dream world. He immediately suggested Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island, and I have to say I don’t think we could’ve picked a better spot. So a few of my friends and I hopped in my car, we went on a road trip, and had an amazing time… and we happened to capture an awesome music video along the way!
I had actually never considered acting before. The opportunity to start auditioning for roles was offered to me not long before I landed the role on Backstage, and before that, I had never really taken acting classes or had an interest in acting. Music was always my focus, and I think that’s why I was cast in the role. They were really looking for artists who had skills and talents outside of acting and, for my role, they were looking for someone who could sing and play multiple instruments.
